100 Million Yuan Wife - chapter-517
Su Man and Eleven gave Eleven an extremely detailed checkup. As the
report would take a few days to be generated, Su Man was not confident of
restoring her. Bai Ye had a solemn look too.
Jason asked Eleven what happened these few days, but she remained mum and
did not want to say a word. Jason was quick-tempered and wanted to
protect her, so he inevitably flared up whilst Eleven remained
indifferent. Third Young Master Ye, out of concern for Ye Wei’s safety,
asked Eleven and she honestly replied. Third Young Master Ye did not say
much, and Cheng Anya knew he was worried and would rather he directly ask.
Eleven was not too concerned about the checkup as she wanted to see Jason
and Bai Ye in Riyadh to ease their minds before leaving again. Wherever
Ye Wei and her had been, they had never caused them to worry before. This
was an accident, and she didn’t plan to remain in Riyadh for long as
she had many things to do.
Bai Ye and Jason would not allow it, and Jason’s heart ached as he saw
her pencil-thin body. He, for once, played the Big Boss to intimidate her
from not having her way until she was better.
Bai Ye decided to compromise and would rather she speak after the report
The good cop and bad cop both had the same aims, and Eleven compromised
by willing to wait for a few more days.
As Cheng Anya had to remain in Riyadh until she delivered, Third Young
Master Ye could not accompany her for long as he had many things to see
to. As she got bored from watching the television in Su Man’s home,
Third Young Master Ye brought her out to play to familiarize her with her
Third Young Master Ye had something to see to today, and it so happened
that Fourth Young Master Tang was also in Riyadh. As Fourth Young Master
Tang was not familiar with Su Man, Third Young Master Ye hence met Fourth
Young Master Tang outside and had to leave in the morning. Cheng Anya was
more recently a heavier sleeper and only woke up in the afternoon.
Su Man and Bai Ye were in the laboratory, and Jason was out. Cheng Anya
saw that Eleven had nothing to do, and asked Eleven whether she wanted to
go out to catch some fresh air.
“Where’s Third Young Master Ye?”
“He went out early in the morning,” Cheng Anya smiled.
Eleven looked at her stomach and got up. “I’ll go with you.”
Cheng Anya was thoughtful and somewhat warm. She knew that Eleven knew
that Ye Chen was not present and decided to go out with Cheng Anya as
there was nobody protecting her. If that wasn’t the case, she would
rather zone out at home.
She did not say that she was actually extremely bored hanging out by
herself at home. Going out and talking to people would definitely lift
Third Young Master Ye had initially made plans to visit an exhibition
with Cheng Anya, and they had already bought tickets .While Cheng Anya
initially thought that visiting the museum was not Eleven’s cup of tea,
there was a last minute change of plans and Eleven shook her head saying
all was fine.
The two ladies viewed the exhibition at the museum.
There were not many people, and those present included locals and
foreigners who were brightly dressed. The exhibits on display were
artwork unique to Saudi Arabia.
“Do you like it?” Eleven, in a rare moment, asked Cheng Anya.
Cheng Anya shook her head. “I don’t particularly like it, but there
is nowhere else in Riyadh that is thoroughly fun to be at. I’ve covered
most of Riyadh when I was previously here, and could use something new.
There’s also another reason tho – I feel that I’m carrying a girl,
and it’s perhaps time to kick start that prenatal education to see if
she has some artistic vibes in her.”
She was musing, and Eleven knew that artistic vibes did not run in the Ye
family as everybody, regardless of gender, was a badass figure. This
child was special, and chances are she was struggling to show concern for
“Did Su Man mention to you that your child’s constitution would be
similar to mine? Chances are that it’s innate.”
“He did mention it,” Cheng Anya did not mind. “As long as the child
can be safely brought to term healthily, I am okay with anything. Su Man
has also mentioned that the child, apart from her slightly special side,
will be fine.”
Eleven nodded. This was the difference between an innate cyborg and a
created cyborg – the special powers on top of a normal, functioning
body. This was where Eleven differed from her.
The two of them toured the museum for over two hours, and Cheng Anya
discovered that Eleven had an extremely good understanding of Saudi
Arabian culture. “It was affected,” Eleven said.
She did not specifically say what it was affected by.
There was a small door at the museum with two guards that led to a small
path containing special exhibits that were priceless. The special
exhibits were only open to select people who required a pass to enter it.
Eleven asked Cheng Anya if she wanted, but Cheng Anya shook her head.
“Forget it, I’ve seen most of the exhibition. Let’s not get too
brazen as we are not on home turf.”
The two of them left the museum and sat in an open-air cafeteria by the
Cheng Anya ordered a glass of fruit juice while Eleven wanted a cup of
tea. Since they would have nothing to do if they returned home too early,
they decided to spend some time at the cafe. “Eleven, do you like
anybody?” Cheng Anya curiously asked Eleven.
Eleven did not understand what Cheng Anya was asking. Cheng Anya coughed
and asked Eleven even more directly, “Is there anybody whom you like?”
“Jason, Chu Li, Bai Ye…”
“No no, I do not mean that kind of ‘like’. ‘Like’ as in how
Third Young Master Ye likes me,” Cheng Anya was at a loss as to whether
to cry or laugh.
Eleven turned her head around slightly and gently said, “No.”
“I can see that Jason really likes you,” Cheng Anya replied teasingly.
Eleven’s terrible look somewhat eased as she held the cup but did not
drink from it but allow the warm cup to warm her hands. “We’re
family,” She gently said.
“But you two are not siblings,” Cheng Anya laughed and said.
“What are you trying to say?”
Cheng Anya laughed. “I feel that Jason is quite a catch and is pretty
compatible with you. Haven’t you ever considered the possibility that
he’s waiting for you?”
Eleven was slightly taken aback and lost for words. She did not consider
the possibility of Jason liking her. Amongst them all, Ye Wei was the
life of the party – liked by all, able to hold a conversation, hype up
the atmosphere, gorgeous-looking… Even she, as a woman, took a liking
to Ye Wei too. Her, in contrast, was cold, uninteresting, of few words,
and not really the most well-liked. Having spent enough time with all of
them to consider them family, anybody who had to face her for the rest of
their lives would be driven mad by the boredom.
“I don’t know,” Eleven gently replied. “I think you might have
“how could it be>” Cheng Anya broke into laughter as she grabbed a
chair and sat next to her. “The way he looks at you is SO telling of
how he likes you. I can feel it.”
“Really?” Eleven was lost and counter-asked in hesitation.
She felt that such an Eleven was adorable. Cheng Anya nodded her head.
“Nobody told you that before?”
Eleven pondered for a moment. Ye Wei, a long time ago, joked to her.
“Eleven, Jason seems to have fallen in love with you. What happens when
ice and fire collide? I can’t wait to find out.”
She thought she was joking and hence ignored her.
Recalling those past years in detail, Jason was undoubtedly nice towards
her but could be extremely cold at times and often avoided her. He
sometimes deliberately kept his distance from her, and she wondered how
she might have offed him.
“Wei Wei must have told you about it before,” Cheng Anya answered her
own question. Ye Wei, who was this smart, could not have missed it whilst
it was afraid the others knew but did not say a word.
Eleven nodded and looked into the tea in the cup that reflected her
somewhat lost eyes.
“Besides, it’s not as though you’re not liked by anybody. Give
Jason some thought!” Since others did not get to reap the best of The
Top Terrorist Organization, the latter hence had the best for itself.
“It’s impossible!” Eleven mused.
Cheng Anya did not say another word.
The two of them only returned to Su Man’s home in the afternoon. A
moment after they reached home, they saw Third Young Master Ye and Jason
waiting at the outer atrium. Third Young Master Ye came over with a
solemn look. “Where were you? You did not pick up the tens of calls I
Cheng Anya opened her purse and looked at her cell phone. Both of them
were lost for words on her dead cell phone.
“Have you had lunch?” Jason asked Eleven.
Eleven shook her head, and his face immediately lit up as he dragged her
to the canteen. Jason had her sit down and quickly disappeared into the
canteen. He was back a moment later with Dana and the few maidservants
serving up sumptuous food that covered the entire table.
Two of the dishes were the eight-treasure rice pudding and roasted
chicken with chestnuts that stood out from the other dishes as they did
not look good and had a somewhat weird color. They stood out from the
other traditional dishes in Riyadh.
Eleven was slightly taken back. This… was her favorite dish.
Cheng Anya curiously looked at the eight-treasure rice pudding and
roasted chicken with chestnuts before Eleven. Could they even be edible?
Who made them? She saw Jason’s uncomfortable look and understood
To think that the brash Jason could be this meticulous… it seems as
though he was extremely concerned about her.
“You made it?” Eleven gently asked.
Jason coughed uncomfortably. “I saw that you had quite a poor appetite
these few days, so I prepared two of your favorite dishes. While they do
not look particularly appetizing, do try them. They are quite…
Eleven, feeling the concern from many, felt a warmth in her heart.
It was because Ye Wei and her were so badass to the point Chu Li, Jason
and all showed very little concern for them. They, in their impression,
were strong enough to the point they could go against the world, not be
injured and not allow people to worry about them.
Even if they were wounded, they would quickly recover. It was especially
so for her (given her special constitution) as she would recover from an
injury in days whilst others would take a month to recover.
The few men rarely saw them as women, let alone do these small things for
They seemed to have forgotten that they needed people to show them
concern and protect them.
“You went to learn to prepare these two dishes in the morning?”
Eleven sounded a little warmer.
She remembered that Jason could not cook whilst Ye Wei, herself, Bai Ye
and Chu Li could. Whenever he hit the kitchen, he would leave the kitchen
in utter ruins and The Old Witch gave up all hope on him learning to cook
and hence barred him from the kitchen.
Chu Li, Ross, Blackjack envied Jason. Chu Li even joked about how Jason
deliberately engaged in sabotage to avoid The Old Witch poisoning their
meals. Eleven knew that he really disliked the kitchen.
Jason blushed and did not respond as he quickly tucked in before sitting
next to Eleven.
Third Young Master Ye and Cheng Anya sat next to them whilst Bai Ye and
Su Man remained in the laboratory.
Cheng Anya somehow felt that Jason was really quite a decent person and
was compatible with Eleven. For a man to go this far was not easy, and
even the toughest of women would undoubtedly soften.
He described it quite well, and the dishes did look off despite smelling
and tasting pretty good. While they were not as good as Ye Wei’s
dishes, she felt that it was the most heartwarming meal she ever had.
The same could be said for the roasted chicken with chestnuts. Jason
remembered that she used to have a thing for spicy food and would add
copious amounts of chilli to the roasted chicken with chestnuts. This
time round, the roasted chicken with chestnuts did not have chilli, let
alone additional spices. It was much plainer, but she really liked it.
How could one get chestnuts in Riyadh? Eleven was extremely baffled but
did not ask and instead quietly ate. She – instead of having a poor
appetite – was not hungry and did not quite want to eat.
Apart from the two dishes Jason prepared, Dana prepared several herbal
recipes according to Su Man’s instruction for Eleven to recuperate.
Jason had Eleven try a bit of everything. As Eleven’s body had not
recuperated after a long time, they could not think of another way out
apart from food therapy.
But she just wouldn’t eat, and Jason felt bad when he saw it. He
thought of ways, and he would be happy as long as she would eat.
Anya and Ye Chen looked at each other and smiled.
Eleven was really obedient this time and ate quite a lot of food. She
loved the eight-treasure rice pudding and ate almost twice of what she
ate daily. Jason felt comforted.
“Was it tasty?”
“It’s really tasty,” Eleven nodded.
“I’ll prepare the same dishes for you tomorrow. Do eat more.” He
wished she would be able to wolf down all the food on the table and
regain her previous health.
“Ok!” Eleven acknowledged as she quietly ate the chestnuts.
The few of them had an extremely happy lunch. Eleven started to speak up
and answered whatever Jason asked although she looked down. Jason ladled
a bowl of body-rejuvenating herbal soup for Eleven and she drank it all
without saying a word.
“Jason, stop feeding her. She’s eaten too much.” Cheng Anya
hesitated and said.
“Is it too much? Still looks fine to me.”
“She did not eat too much in the past few days, and her stomach would
be quite uncomfortable from all that sudden eating.” Men could be
persons of broad strokes at times.
“Eleven, are you feeling ok? Why don’t you tell me anything?” Jason
asked in a panic.
“It’s okay,” Eleven gently replied as she quietly drank her soup.
Jason, this time round, did not get her anymore food or soup.
After lunch, Ye Chen and Jason had matters to discuss with Chu Li and
went to the study room together. Eleven had indeed eaten a little too
much and felt a little bloated. Cheng Anya accompanied her for a walk in
“I told you that you can’t eat so much all at once.”
“Save Ye Wei, this is the first time somebody has specially cooked for
me.” Eleven plainly replied.
Cheng Anya was taken aback and felt a slight heartache.
